Microsoft Releases Sci-Fi Anthology

Ann Leckie’s story, for one, focuses on translation between two spacefaring factions that speak two different languages. Since then, Skype has incorporated on-the-fly translation features into their platform. These themes are surely indicative of the future of technology, and with a power source like Microsoft, it’s possible that these writers composed these stories with only half fiction in mind. Who knows, we may even see some of the elements in these short stories in modern society.

The Anthology is Available for Free Today

Future: Visions: Original Science Fiction Stories Inspired by Microsoft is available for free download already. According to the editing team, the collection is a good collection of science fiction stories aside from the collaboration with Microsoft. Could this collection inspire Microsoft veering into the publishing industry? Perhaps this will inspire other technology-oriented companies to do the same.
